Study: Immigration Reform Would Boost Kentucky Revenues By $23 Million

Jul 10, 2013

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A study by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy estimates Kentucky stands to gain $23.2 million in increased revenue should Congress pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill.

The 50-state analysis assumes that a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country will be included in any legislative package.

That would add around 80,000 new Kentuckians who would fully participate in the state and local tax systems.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Senate passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill Thursday, but Kentucky Senators did not vote in favor.
